In The Burnt Orange Heresy, Mick Jagger plays the debonair, nefarious art collector, Joseph Cassidy, and he’s terrific—but his role is so small that you long for more of him. This art scene noir is picking up strong word of mouth, with stars Claes Bang (The Square/Dracula) and Elizabeth Debicki (Widows/Guardians of the Galaxy Vol II) singled out for praise.
But not so co-star Mick Jagger, who has been lambasted for his…well… Jagger-esque performance. So lets take a look at the best and worst of Jagger on film.
Coulda been OK-ish (alright, it’s pretty bad, but I wanted more than one in the black ledger):
FITZCARRALDO/BURDEN OF DREAMS (1982, Jagger had to drop out):
And here is uber-stoner Floyd (Brad Pitt) watching the FREEJACK movie in True Romance
NED KELLY (1970):
RUNNING OUT OF LUCK (1987):
THE MAN FROM THE ELYSIAN FIELDS (2001):
Lets face it Mick – whatever you think, YOU CAN’T BLOODY ACT! Although you HAVE been getting pretty good reviews in your latest picture, The Burnt Orange Heresy.
